    Wanna Go Diving??

    Thought I would try-on my Wife's 1000T Carib. This is the watch that she dives with, and she loves it.



    Nah......I'll stick with my Caribbean GMT.



    It seems as if the Ocean is ready.......Let's Go!!!


    First, It is nice to spot A Southern Stingray


    How about an Eagle Ray




    Oh!!! There goes a Sea Turtle


    Here are some pretty Coral formations







    Holy Moly there Batman!!! An Octopus during the Day (Same Octopus only seconds to minutes between shots)










    There Go a couple Parrotfish!!




    Better End the dive for now.

    BTW, for those of you interested.........
    .

    The pictures were a compilation of the best pictures out of about 600 shots all taken between the depths of 15 and 95 feet. Most of these pictures were shot between 15-40ft. They were all taken on the 22 dives that I did during 6 days of diving this last week in Bonaire N.A. in the Caribbean.

    I spotted the Octopus during the day at about 11am in approximately 20 feet of water. I have done approximately 150 dives in Bonaire, and I usually see 1-2 Octopuses per trip and most of those are seen on night dives. I don't have an underwater flash yet, so I am not equipped to shoot night shots. I have so wanted a good Octopus picture, and finally got several on this trip. We saw a total of 5 Octopuses on this trip with 3 of them being during the day and two of them spotted at night.

    For those of you that might be interested, here are a few videos that I have shot in Bonaire.

    Could you give me a side-by-side dials shot of the 1000 and the GMT so that I can see the width differences?

    I'm contemplating the Caribbean GMT.

    Great pics! I love the turtle pic and video.
    the octopus pics are awesome too but, you know I wouldn't have the balls to be so close to one. Even less shooting a video of it during the night :oops:
    It would just scare thinking it could jump rite on my face lol

    Thanks for posting the pics

    great pictures of the sea life.

    is the hue on the blue on the 1000T the same as the one on the gmt?

    I saw an actual gmt and the blue hue is fantastic
